113 innards

113 innards

Click to view full size image

The insides of the 113. The lamp is a GE Lucalox. It's pretty nasty in there, lots of dead bugs and some pine needles (I don't even know how they got in there considering this was nowhere near a pine tree). It has an exposed circuit board ignitor, and the ballast is pretty big for just a simple choke. I was expecting something smaller.

These older ballasts are usually way bigger, like double the size.

No, this is a AE (American Electric) cobra head.

The numbers indicate the wattage, except it is multiplied by 10. For example, 10 is 100 watts and 25 is 250 watts.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I always thought 100W HPS needed an autotransformer on 120V mains. I guess not...

The lamp is only 55 arc volts that why it can get
Away with a with a simple reactor chokes. Even a s55 150 watt HPS lamp. Things changes when things goes S56 150 watts and up

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

Nice save! I wonder if they actually gave you another 113 from a different pole that had pine trees near it? Then again, strange things appear in street lights lol. I've gotten lights that are full of nasty stuff that puzzled me as to how it got in there.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

I wondered that too, but then I compared it to a picture I took from underneath while it was still up. It's the same light, I can tell by the water marks on the bottom.

Ah even better! Yeah 113s are prone to water marks. Just a design flaw I suppose, albeit not a significant one. The Unistyles had that issue too.

Um... does anyone know how to get a stuck bulb out? It won't budge but I don't want to risk breaking it either.

I've used WD-40 before....

I've also broken sockets before...

Both worked.. but you gotta be real careful with the second option....

Sometimes you gotta break the bulb and then with two pairs of needle-nose pliers you can turn the screw base of the lamp.
